3. Then add sugar and continue stirring until the mixture is slighly thick.
4. Add the Cardamom powder, saffron (dissolved in very little warm milk,approx 3-4 tbsp) and cream and stir well.

  Chef's Tip :-
 * You can use Milk Powder for thickening of the pudding.
 * Instead of Sugar, you can also use Condensed Milk.
 * The Gajrela/Carrot Pudding when refrigerated(for those of you who do not like it hot) also  tastes yummy. You could just warm it for a few seconds before serving!
